Commencement 1949 was a grand 
occasion — around 600 alumnae re- 
turned to enjoy class reunion lunch- 
eons, a stimulating business meeting 
and the alumnae supper. Alumnae Day 
was filled with enthusiasm, chats with 
old friends, renewed friendships, 
pledges of loyalty and support, and a 
show of great pride in the Woman's 
College. W\ 

Highlight of the business meeting 
Saturday afternoon was the presence 
of Senator and Mrs. Frank Graham. 
Dr. Graham's message to the alumnae 
was filled with inspiration and hope 
and encouragement. As is always the 
case, he gave the alumnae thoughts to 
take away with them about pertinent 
national and state problems. It was 
a particular pleasure to have Mrs. 
Graham with us. Her charm and gra- 
ciousness make her presence an addi- 
tion to any occasion. 

The Alumnae Supper attended 
by more than 400 Alumnae, guests 
and faculty, was most enjoyable. Sarah 
Poole Cartland catered and plans for 
the supper were made and executed 
by Anne Fulton Carter and her social 
committee. Daisy chain Sophomores 
helped with the serving and tables 
were filled throughout the house, on 
the upstairs and downstairs porches 
and out on the lawn back of the 

Alumnae Exhibit: One of the 
most interesting features of Com- 
mencement was the exhibit of dresses, 
scrapbooks, pictures, annuals, etc., 
throughout the Alumnae House. The 
exhibit was planned and put up by 
Ellen Griffin, Dorothy Clement, Eliza- 
beth Hathaway, Agnes Coxe, and 
Valerie (Powell) Jones. 

Open House at the Alumnae House 
from Friday night through Monday 
noon was made an enjoyable occasion 
by members of the faculty who served 
as hosts and hostesses. 

It was a grand commencement — 
the only thing wrong was that all of 
you could not come. 

Building Program: Woman's Col- 
lege campus is taking on the "new 
look" rapidly. The new Library be- 
gins to look like a real building, and 
the two new residence halls, located 
between Kirkland and Weil-Winfield, 
is a mass of steel. 

Renovation of the dining halls will 
be complete when college opens in 
September; plans for the Home Eco- 
nomics addition, Science Building, 
Physical Education Building, and Stu- 
dent Union are in the hands of the 

Administration Building has had her 
face lifted with paint and new fur- 
nishings, and several changes have 
been made in office locations. 

Correction: Through error, the 
May issue of the Alumnae News in 
the article on the Graduate Program, 
failed to list graduate work in Ele- 
. mentary Education. A number of stu- 
dents have received masters degrees in 
this field in years past, and this year 
eleven degrees were granted. 


As The Alumnae News goes 
to press plans are being made to ' 
broadcast the Founder's Day Pro- 
gram, Wednesday, October 5th, 
over the Dixie FM Network. Si- 
multaneous meetings of alumnae 
chapters will be held to hear the 

Mr. D. Hiden Ramsey, editor 
of the Asheville Citizen-Times, 
will be the main speaker, and Mrs. 
John Sockwell, Jr., president of 
the Alumnae Association, will 
participate. Chancellor W. C. 
Jackson will preside and the Col- 
lege Choir, under the direction of 
George M. Thompson, will repeat 
I. the Litany. 

Make your plans now to attend 
your local chapter meeting. 

Arrangements for the broad- 
cast are being made through Mr. 
Gaines Kelley, Manager of Station 
WFMY in Greensboro. 

Receive Honorary Degrees from the Woman's College 

At its fifty-seventh annual Commencement, the Woman's College of 
the University of North Carolina conferred honorary degrees on the three 
outstanding women pictured above. From left to right, Mrs. Inglis Fletcher, 
Doctor of Literature; Miss Katherine Anne Porter, Doctor of Literature; 
and Miss Mary E. Leeper, Doctor of Education. In awarding the honorary 
degrees, Chancellor Walter Clinton Jackson cited the outstanding work and 
significant contributions of these women: 

"Miss Mary E. Leeper, pioneer educator and champion of children . . . 
Every act of her adult life, every office she has held, every project she 
has directed, has been in the interest of children . . . Her vision of edu- 
cation as guidance and schools as theatres of opportunity, has heartened 
thousands of teachers." 

"Miss Katherine Anne Porter, foremost American short story writer . . . 
Katherine Anne Porter has made an invaluable contribution to American 
writing. She is one of the most accomplished of contemporary American 
writers. She is indeed, the best American short story writer at work today." 

"Mrs. Inglis Fletcher, distinguished novelist of North Carolina ... A 
writer of international recognition, a traveler of warm and intelligent per- 
ception, a creative historian and a loyal citizen of the Old North State."

mmencement Exercises Monday, 

May 30. 1949, 

in A>-cock Auditorium follows. 

Today marks the end of our four 
years at the Woman's College — the 
end of four years of being integrated 
into a body of persons with common 
interests and corporate functions, of 
learning not only how to make a liv- 
ing, but also how to live. But more 
important, this is a beginning as well 
as an ending. It is our commence- 
ment. It is the time for us to move 
into the large and more complex soci- 
ety of the world, a less well-inte- 
grated body, where we can begin ful- 
filling the responsibility of educated 
persons. It is time for us to move 
from our community where life is 
stable and happy, where values are 
high, and where there is a spirit of 
vinselfishness and obedience, to a world 
whose peoples often have a twisted 
sense of values, an undercurrent of 
fear, and a perilous suspicion of each 
other, but who are, nevertheless, tena- 
ciously struggling for peace among 
themselves and other groups. 

We entered Woman's College at the 
close of World War II when our peo- 
ple possessed mixed feelings of thanks- 
giving, hatred, fear, and uncertainty. 
New scientific discoveries demanded a 
change in our values and a new re- 
spect for man in relation to the mate- 
rial. We have watched the outcome 


of the plans for peace from a situa- 
tion where estabhshed self-government 
was being constantly tested. We dis- 
covered that human nature is full of 
frailty, that freedom has its limita- 
tions, that justice is often an elusive 
entity, that cooperation is to be se- 
cured only as a result of infinite pa- 
tience and pains. But we discovered 
much more — that the sense of triumph 
which followed the painful striving 
for these things was worth many times 
the price we paid. As a result of our 
efforts, we come to know something 
of what it means as free individuals 
to resolve our differences and to reach 
worthy ends. From this experience 
we have formed a wholesome outlook 
toward obedience, a respect for, and 
confidence in, others, a personal re- 
sponsibility for the welfare of the 
group, a faith in our fellows and a 
trust in God. 

Here at the Woman's College, we 
have been taught by learned people. 
But these people have done more than 
teach us; they have followed through 
by guiding us. In their interest in our 
corporate life and in us as individuals, 
they have influenced the other part of 
our education — designed to unify our 
knowledge and apply it to worthy so-

Dear Alumnae: 

This column belongs to Gibby Sat- 
terfield and I wish that we could per- 
suade her to continue it. So much 
has been accomplished during her two 
years in office and so many other 
worthwhile things have been started 
that our association owes her a great 
debt. We new officers are most pleased 
that she serves on the Board for an- 
other year, where her ideas and her 
advice will be invaluable. 

It was wonderful to see so many of 
you at Commencement. There were 
63 5 of us returning for one or more 
of the reuning festivities. I felt hon- 
ored and pleased to be a part of such 
a loyal group and am deeply thrilled 
at the possibilities for service inherent 
in the office you have given me. I am 
grateful for your early support, in- 
terest and cooperation, and feel sure 

that with the help of Betty Jester and 
Evon Dean and the encouragement of 
Dr. Jackson and Katherine Taylor, 
we can all work together for the 
growth and development of our Col- 
lege and of our association. To me 
the association means the College. 
Fundamentally, aren't the two one 
and the same? 

Your new Board has begun making 
plans for another year. Many sugges- 
tions have been made; some ideas dis- 
cussed, but everything boils down to 
the same basic fact each time — we 
need funds. As Gibby explained in 
her letter to you in February '48, our 
association is not yet a financially in- 
dependent organization. Out of a pos- 
sible 26,000 we have only 2,576 con- 
tributing members. We can do very 
little toward fellowships, scholarships 
or a chapel unless more of us can take 

an active part. The thousands of silent 
alumnae and the hundreds of "lost" 
ones must surely not be willing to 
sever their connection with this asso- 
ciation which is the closest link to the 
College. We are all needed by our 
alma mater. Let us all try to awaken 
interest among our alumnae friends 
and corral them into the fold during 
the coming months. 

Do remember that your Board is 
interested in hearing from you. Please 
write us any suggestions which you 
may have or any questions which you 
would like answered. We can easily 
use this space for questions and 

Yours sincerely,

cial ends. This possession will be ours, 
whether we are in business or creative 
pursuits, in social work or foreign 
service, in teaching or homemaking. 
This "way of life' is important, not 
only to those few of us who may in- 
fluence our national problems, but to 
those whose lives will be primarily 
devoted to personal, and family, and 
community life. 

We, the class of nineteen-hundred 
and forty-nine, acknowledge our edu- 
cation for what it is. To Dr. Jackson, 
Miss Taylor, to the entire faculty, and 
to all who have afFected it in any way, 
we want to prove our sincere grati- 
tude by our application of it to the 
life outside college. We want to cre- 
ate situations in other groups where 
we can expand the "way of life", 
which we have learned at the Wom- 
an's College. 

Woman^s College Claims 
First Woman Judge in N. C. 

Woman's College takes great pride 
in another First — the appointment of 
Susie Sharp, class of '28, Judge of the 
Superior Court of North Carolina. 
Judge Sharp, appointed by Governor 
Kerr Scott, took the oath of office 
July 1, 1949. 

Her consummate humility indicated 
in her question, "Who am I to judge 
other human beings?" is one of her 
finest attributes. 

After attending Woman's College 
for two years, 1924-1926, Susie trans- 
ferred to the University of North 
Carolina, where she completed her law 
degree in 1929. Since that time she 
has practiced law most successfully in 
Reidsville as a partner with her father, 
J. M. Sharp, in the firm of Sharp & 
Sharp. She is the oldest of seven chil- 
dren and makes her home with her 
parents in Reidsville. 

Recalling her undergraduate years 
at North Carolina College for Wom- 
en, Judge Sharp remarked that even 
though she had always wanted to be 
a lawyer, after studying physics and 
chemistry at the College, she almost 
changed her mind and decided to be 
a chemist. She recalled with pleasure 
her work under Miss Mary Petty, then 
head of the Department of Chemistry. 

She was most impressed by her 
Freshman English teacher, who taught 
her the value of being individual, and 
says that she enjoyed her course in 
American History under Dr. W. C. 
Jackson more than any other. 

Judge Sharp presided over her first 
court July 25 in Rockingham. "I 
realize," she added, "that because I am 
a woman, the mistakes which I will 
inevitably make will probably receive 
more attention than if made by a 
man. Like the blind man, I will have 
to work harder to come up to the 
standard of the ordinary, reasonably 
prudent man." 

In discussing the responsibility of 
women in the world today, she said, 
"A woman has not fulfilled her re- 
sponsibility as a citizen when she does 
her household chores and attends her 
children any more than her husband 
has fulfilled his responsibility when 
he pays the bills. A woman's responsi- 
bility is no greater, but it is just as 
great as that of a man. If one does 
not give some thought and attention 
to public affairs, one may soon find 
out that he or she has no private af- 

fairs which require attention. Women 
must accept and fulfill their responsi- 
bility to vote, serve on juries, boards, 
and to do any other task of a public 
nature which comes their way. If 
they do not, let them be forever 
estopped to complain about the way 
the country is run, justice is adminis- 
tered, or about the smell of politics!" 
Woman's College is proud to claim 
North Carolina's first woman judge. 
Our Governor is to be congratulated 
on her appointment. Her fairness, her 
sense of justice, her ability to think 
with her mind, rather than her emo- 
tions, added to her personal charm, 
her dignity, and her professional mien, 
promise that we will be grateful to 
her for so effectively representing 
womanhood and the legal profession. 

3,446 Libraries in North 

North Carolina has 3,44 6 libraries 
containing 8,127.137 volumes, according 
to a graphic exhibition made in Durham 
at the 2 6th meeting of the North Caro- 
lina Library Association in April. 

The exhibition of pictures and charts, 
prepared by Charles M. Adams, librarian 
of Woman's College of U. N. C. and 
members of his staff, pointed out that 
these libraries make an annual total ex- 
penditure of $2,836,077. There are 
1,280 librarians in the state. 

According to the exhibition report 
there are 237 public libraries with 1,- 
672.142 volumes. 53 college and uni- 
versity libraries with 2.702,726 volumes. 
3.151 school libraries reporting 3.534.- 
5 62 volumes, and five special libraries 
containing 217,706 volumes. 

The exhibition points to the need of 
more trained librarians in North Carolina 
and throughout the nation. 

Members of Woman's College library 
staff who attended sessions were Misses 
Elizabeth Sampson. Virginia Trumper, 
Sue Vernon Williams, Mary Robert Sea- 
well. Marjorie Hood. Margaret Mason. 
Vivian Moose, Mrs. Elizabeth Holder, 
and Mr. Adams. 

New W. C. Dean 

Dr. Charles" E. Prall, of Chicago, 
education specialist for the American 
Hospital Association, has been named 
Dean of the School of Education at 
Woman's College of the University of 
North Carolina. He is regarded one 
of the country's leading authorities in 
the field of teacher education and edu- 
cation research. 

The Alumnae News 

Dr. Francis P. Gaines 
Delivers 1949 Baccalaureate 

Commencement is a thrilling spectacle 
— the triumph of youth. No moment 
could be more inspiring than this recog- 
nition of young people who have com- 
pleted a program of long, hard work, 
a program not of their making and often 
not of their liking, but a program which 
society deems the best preparation for all 
future destiny. The dominant emotion 
now in responsive hearts is one of con- 

Commencement is also a dramatic epi- 
sode in a pageant which Americans love 
with peculiar passion, the pageant of ed- 
ucation. No nation on earth. I presume, 
can show more outward devotion, more 
inner concern in behalf of the training 
of youth. Nowhere are there such huge 
investments, such large enrollments, such 
mighty groups of professional workers; 
nowhere is there more discussion of poli- 
cies and processes: nowhere does educa- 
tion loom larger in the promises and the 
performance of civic leaders. It is among 
our supreme undertakings. 

Commencement may be therefore a 
moment not only to applaud but also to 
appraise. What harvest, in largest and 
enduring terms, do we get from this crop 
which we cultivate so earnestly? 

American education may be given large 
credit for making us the most powerful 
of the world's nations. The recent war 
manifested what many of us knew, that 
never before has a country had so many 
different people of such extraordinary 
competence in the mastery of matter. In 
mass consideration, that faculty which 
for lack of a better term we call the 
"know-how" has reached history's high- 
est point in our current people of edu- 
cational training. 

It follows as a kind of corollary that 
education, at least in part, has given us 
more of what we thoughtlessly call pro- 
gress, more comforts and more luxuries 
distributed among more people, than the 
world ever saw before. What would be 
for citizens of other nations some of the 
undreamed extravagances become with us 
the commonplace equipment for everyday 
living. America has been defined as the 
land of the gadget, but that gadget must 
be good and it does contribute to the 
ease of existence. 

Still seeking the wide perspective, we 
record that American education has pop- 
ularized and enforced the noblest polit- 
ical idealism ever accepted by man. The 
grand concepts which were born in the 
dreams of our wisest and which have been 
protected by the daring of our bravest 
are the common matters of American in- 
struction. Millions of men in the recent 
war went forth to battle for convictions, 
strong if not always clear, that had been 
imparted by school-teachers. 

Excerpts from address ot Dr. Francis P. 
Gaines, president of Washington and Lee Uni- 
versit.v, delivered Sunda.v, May 29, 1949, in 
Aycock Auditorium. 

It cannot be said, alas, that education 
has contributed greatly to the safety of 
the individual or of the world. The 
knowledge that perfected our automobile 
exacts a terrible toll in human life. The 
crooked business executive or despotic 
labor leader or clever demagogue is but 
the more dangerous because of education. 
The miraculous advance of scientific 
knowledge in certain phases is the terror 
of humanity today. Says one of our 
leading statesman: "It is one of the par- 
adoxes of our times that m.odern society 
has little to fear except man, and, what 
is worse, it needs to fear only the edu- 
cated man." All Americans with the 
laudable passion for education might 
ponder long those ominous words. 

Nor can it be said that education has 
contributed greatly to our happiness. For 
all our unprecedented energies of train- 
ing, we remain a restless, frantic people, 
searching for that which we have not 
yet found. The production and processes 
of what we might call our escapism, 
from the best to the worst, are among 
our major businesses — the movie, the 
sporting park, the brewery, or what you 
will. Titles of best sellers are eloquent 
of what we eagerly seek — on the list 
recently and stubbornly have been "Peace 
of Mind," "How to Stop Worrying," 
now "Peace of Soul." The contract of 
the ancient sacrament of marriage — "in 
honor preferring one another", is harder 
and harder to maintain, and homes are 
breaking as never before. Mental cases 
multiply. The residue of hatred, largely 
a vicious consequence of war, is deep and 
firm within us: issues that might be 
themes of logical difference are bitter 
emotions: groups and blocs glare at each 
other: we think, not as the great Apostle 
pleaded of what is true and lovely and 
pure, but of what is prejudice and fury. 
The power of education to give us lofty 
and serene moods remains to be demon- 

Translated into individual terms, edu- 
cation by itself, we know, is not enough. 
Beyond the degree is the difficult road to 
a greater attainment, to the winning of 
an adequate philosophy of life. Without 
it the tensions of a human being become 
unendurable — a human being endowed 
with all hungers and fears of the animal 
but with the unceasing restlessness of 
much more, of imagination, of ranging 
wonder and dream, of dreadful capacity 
to suffer that which is not physical pain, 
of the unpitying assizes which are con- 

Beyond the degree there remains only 
the timeless, changeless power that forti- 
fies our purposes, lightens our darkness, 
lifts from the heart our intolerable re- 
morse, gives us perfect assurance of 

strength that is greater than our own. 
If I could suggest a motto for every 
graduating class, a phrase that would 
project across the years all the fineness of 
experience attained, that would enlarge 
the reach of mind and soul into fulfill- 
ment of every need or hope, I would 
offer the deathless truth phrased by an 
ancient poet: 

"Except the Lord build the house. 
They labor in vain that build it: 
Except the Lord keep the city. 
The watchman waketh but in vain." 


At the annual Commencement ex- 
ercises at Bennett College, May 3 0, 
1949, Chancellor \V. C. Jackson was 
awarded an honorary degree- by Dr. 
David Jones, president. The follow- 
ing citation was read when the degree 
was presented: 

son of the South, student of a great 
teacher, William Heard Kilpatrick; 
believer in democracy beyond your 
environment, pioneer in the field of 
better race relations; student, teacher, 
author, guider of the destinv of one 
of America's great colleges for wom- 
en; by virtue of the authority vested 
in me, I hereby confer upon you the 
deTee of Doctor of Humane Letters 
vath all the rights, privileges and 
honors thereto appertaining."

to the Seniors 

Members of the 
Graduating Class: 

I cannot hope to crowd into this 
brief moment all the respect, the con- 
fidence, the gratitude, the admiration, 
?.nd the affection and good wishes I 
have for you. I shall not indulge in 
advice nor repeat commonplace plati- 
tudes about success and happiness. 
These things you must find in your 
own good way. I can only engage in 
the repetition of things that are near 
to my heart. 

This is the fifteenth time I have said 
good-bye to a departing Senior Class. 
There has been a steadfast accumula- 
tion in these years of a meeting of 
minds and hearts between us — these 
former classes and myself — and it 
rises today to its highest level, a flood 
that overflows its bounds. Your cour- 
tesy, your generosity, your good sense 
and good humor, your devotion to the 
College have all been unmatched and 
unsurpassed. You must know then 
with what satisfaction and with what 
confidence I see you leave today. 

You take another turn this morn- 
ing in the long road you are traveling. 
The scene changes for the College as 
well as for you. The rich gifts which 
you have brought to the College will 
not be lost with your going, but will 
abide with us. The College will carry 
through the coming years the mark 
of your study, your play, and your 
personahty. All of the Gym Meets, 
Arts Forums, Purse Drives, Social Sci- 
ence Forums, University Sermons, So- 
ciety Dances, Carolinians and Corad- 
tiis, and Pine Needles, College Broad- 
casts, and Playhker Productions, May 
Days and Chapel Programs, and 
Greater University Councils will be 
forever colored, in one way or an- 
other, by those of which you have 
been a part. You have traits and gifts 
that have increased the sum of the 
virtues of the procession of great per- 
sons who have passed this way. You 
have helped to make the College 
strong and great. We have respected 
your individuality, and we shall not 
forget it. 

All that we have learned here to- 
gether has been about the problem of 
how to handle the precious gift of 
living. Not everything about it, of

course, has been mastered in these four 
years. You will continue to learn and 
to grow. It is one of my deepest 
wishes for you that you will always 
be really good and responsive and ap- 
preciative. I shall always be grateful 
that you chose to do this important 
part of your learning and growing in 
this place. I believe that these years 
have opened doors to you that you 
might have otherwise forever missed. 
You have held steadfastly to proven 
things while opening your minds to 
new truths. I commend that same 
steadfastness for openness to you for 
all the years ahead. I hope you will 
content yourselves with nothing less 
than the full allegiance to the good 
and the true and the beautiful that 
this College has always tried to repre- 
sent. In such a faith and practice you 
may go forth confident to serve a 
wider community. Integrity of charac- 
ter, commitment and loyalty to the 
finest visions, a deep concern for all 
people — these you have shown in 
your life here. It is with high hope 
that we send you forth secure in the 
faith that you will take your part in 
the great community that lies about 
you mindful that a measure of the des- 
tiny of many hundreds of us is in your 

There are so many things to be 
done. You can do many of them and 
do them handsomely. Go about doing 
these things with confidence, with 
imagination, with zest, and with faith 
and hope and charity. There will be 
difficulties; meet them with courage 
and intelligence. There will be suc- 
cesses and failures; treat them all with 
good sense and equanimity. There will 
be comedies and tragedies; valleys, 
dead levels and mountain peaks; take 
them all in your stride with love in 
your hearts and with a welcome to 
the winds of destiny in your face. 
Nor time, nor place, nor height, nor 
depth, nor powers, nor any circum- 
stance can ever separate you from the 
love that has grown between us. Adieu 
and God be with each and every one 
of you.

Wilma Thompson Runs 

Henderson Kindergarten 

Ingenuity and originality plus some 
good hard work have paid dividends for 
Wilma Thompson '48, who runs a pri- 
vate kindergarten in Henderson. The co- 
operation of the local school board in 
allowing her to use one of the rooms 
in a public school building is quite an 

In the fall of her senior year, Wilma 
knew she wanted to teach kindergarten, 
so she approached the school superintend- 
ent and the school board for their per- 
mission to use an extra room in a school 
very centrally located and convenient to 
her home. 

The job of decorating was done dur- 
ing the summer and with the help of 
her mother and father, the walls were 
painted: bookshelves, see-saws, blocks. 
and easels were made in their basement- 
workshop at home: and colored curtains 
were hung at the long school-room win- 
. dows. Wilma's mother salvaged from the 
attic her dolls, doll clothes, doll bed and 
doll carriages, which afforded hours of 
wonderful entertainment for the little 

Two weeks before school opened, the 
new teacher visited each of the twenty- 
four children who had signed up and 
spent about an hour with each child.

telling him about what they would do 
at kindergarten and getting him ac- 
quainted with Miss Thompson. She 
found it a decided advantage to know the 
name of each child the day school opened. 
"My first day of school will never be 
forgotten." Wilma says, "there were 24 
children, their mothers and a few fathers. 
The children were playing with blocks, 
puzzles, dolls and books. Parents were 
trying to pay the ten dollar a month fee

and it was like a madhouse, but I man- 
aged to live through it." 

Transportation is the responsibility of 
the parents, but some of the children ar- 
rive at 8:15 so they can ride with their 
fathers and school is over at noon. 

Highlights of the year were the Hal- 
lowe'en party, with the children in cos- 
tumes and surprised to find a gypsy 
teaching them, the Christmas party, and 
a special program in May. Corsages of 
silvered sweet-gum balls and red candles 
and decorations for the Christmas tree 
were all made by the children. The chim- 
ney and mantel. Miss Thompson made 
from a bicycle box covered with brick- 
printed paper. Christmas cookies were 
mixed and cut by the young cooks and 
baked in the school cafeteria through the 
cooperation of the dietitian. 

Her enthusiasm for her work and her 
gratitude to her teachers at Woman's Col- 
lege — ^Miss Eugenia Hunter, Miss Patsy 
Montague, and Miss Ruth Lee — for their 
practical help as well as good training 
were in evidence at all times. The love 
of the children for their teacher was ap- 
parent when they would call out greet- 
ings to her as she rode along Main Street. 

Miss Thompson has been thrilled by 
the advancement of her children in learn- 
ing to play together, dramatics, music, 
and art. The will to do a good job has 
been the secret of her success, but the 
labor has been lightened by personal in- 
terest in each of the twenty-four whom 
she loves as her very own. 

As a successful kindergarten teacher. 
Wilma is a credit to her family and to 
Woman's College.

the state, " and with the constant use of

Miss Katherine Taylor, dean of 
women, said that in travelling 5,000 to 
6,000 miles to speak to 25 to 30 alum- 
nae groups she has emphazised three 
points, the set-up at the College to take 
care of every student as an individual,

social program to give students a normal

selors give her a complete personnel re- 
port of each girl she sometimes knows 
as much about the girls as some of the 
parents. She told of all the religious 
activities on the campus and stated that 
she hopes the college will add religion to 
the curriculum soon. She stressed the fact 
that the social graces of better living are 
emphasized and the social life is well 
planned to make every girl a well- 
rounded, well-educated woman to make 
the most of her life, 


The Massachusetts chapter of the W. 
C. U. N. C. Alumnae Association met 
April 30, at 24 Pinckney St. in Boston. 
Mrs. Herbert Park (Frances Little '41) 
had invited the group to her attractive 
Beacon Hill apartment for this meeting 
and more than 3 alumnae gathered at 
2 p.m. 

The good news had spread fast that 
Mrs. Betty Jester and Miss Katherine 
Taylor were to be present and their ar- 
rival shortly after two o'clock started one 
of the happiest meetings which this group 
has had. There was just too much to be 
said and done in one afternoon, so we 
did the best we could with routine busi- 

Frances Park, vice-president, took 
charge of the meeting, explaining that 
Mrs. Harold Levin (Myra Siflf '46), 
president, has moved to Buffalo. We 
shall all miss Myra who did so much 
to help the group organize, but we wish 
her happiness in her new home. Frances 
asked for reports from the secretary and 
treasurer. She then spoke of the success 
of the bridge party held at the McKin- 
ney's home. 'Those who were able to 
attend reported a very happy evening. 
Mrs. E. P. MacDonald (Ernestine Haly- 
burton '3 3) gave details of the plans for 
a picnic at her home May 21. Mrs. 
Russell E. Pilling (Ruth Schohn '44), 
chairman of the membership committee, 
told of her work on the membership 
list and suggested ways of reaching and 
interesting members in certain localities 
more easily. 

The following members were elected 
to office for the coming year: 

President — Mrs. Charles G. Sawyer 
(Betsy Ivey '46) . 

Vice President — Mrs. E. P. MacDon- 
ald (Ernestine Halyburton '33). 

Secretary — Mrs. John P. McNaught 
(Jane Tulloch '44). 

Treasurer — Geraldine McKinney '4 8 

Program Chairman — Gladys Price '32. 

We were very happy to spend the re- 
mainder of the afternoon listening to 
Mrs. Jester and Miss Taylor. Our Massa- 
chusetts alumnae are so far from Greens- 
boro that every bit of college news is 
real news, and Mrs, Jester and Miss Tay- 
lor are excellent reporters. We were glad 
to hear that Dr. Jackson will remain as 
Chancellor; that the Alumnae organiza- 
tion has proven itself a real force in the 
growing program of the College. We 
were thrilled by all the changes taking 
place on the campus — the closing of 
Walker Avenue and the new library. The 
proposed plans for other new buildings 
sound wonderful. It was good to know 
that the Harriet Elliott Social Science 
Forum was successful as well as the Vo- 
cational Guidance Conference, newly at- 
tempted this year. 

The final treat of the afternoon was 
the colored film of last year's commence- 
ment activities which Mrs. Jester showed 
for the group. We were all full of ques- 
tions and anxious to talk but the time 
had passed far too swiftly and our meet- 
ing had to adjourn. Our chief request 
was that Mrs. Jester and Miss Taylor 
make a return engagement soon.

It was a cool, beautiful New England 
day and we made frankfurters and ham- 
burgers disappear in short order. 

We spent the evening playing games, 
talking, and listening to Nita (Fife) 
Jennings '44 and her husband. Bob, 
play the piano.

The Alumnae News 

Report of Alumnae Office 

The interest and activity in the Alum- 
nae Association this year has been most 
gratifying. During 1947-1948 we were 
delighted to report 24 local chapter meet- 
ings. This year there have been 125 local 
chapter meetings since October 1. 1948, 
with several thousand alumnae in attend- 

Sixty-one of the local meetings were 
held on Founder's Day in the hope that 
the program from Aycock Auditorium 
would be broadcast. Technical difficulties 
of course prevented the broadcast from 
being heard, but from the Founder's Day 
effort came forty-seven newly organized 
or reactivated alumnae chapters in North 
Carolina, which have since that time had 
other meetings. 

■We now have 62 local alumnae chap- 
ters — 48 in North Carolina and fourteen 
out of the state, including: 

■Washington. D. C. St. Petersburg, 
Fla.. Boston, Mass.. New Jersey, New 
York City, Philadelphia, Pa., Columbia. 
S. C. 

Atlanta. Ga.. Kingsport. Tenn., Chi- 
cago, 111., 'Wilmington. Del.. Baltimore, 
Md.. Richmond. Va.. Norfolk, Va. 

The College Faculty and students have 
been most cooperative in attending meet- 
ings. Sixty faculty members and a num- 
ber of students have visited 5 5 of these 
groups. Many of them have been to sev- 
eral meetings. 

Emphasis at the local chapter meetings 
has been placed on bringing the alumnae 
up to date on the changes that are tak- 
ing place in the physical plant, curricu- 
lum, faculty and student body at 'Wom- 
an's College rather than the solicitation 
of funds or active memberships. It has 
been a "Know Your College" year. 

Active memberships in the Alumnae 
Association now total 2185, an increase 
of approximately 46% within the past 
two years. 

Your Alumnae Secretary has attended 
26 alumnae meetings and has travelled 
4990 miles during the past year. 

Any accomplishments or achievements 
of the Alumnae Association are due: 

1. To the President of the Associa- 
tion who has given so generously of her- 
self and her time and thoughts to plan- 
ning and executing the alumnae projects 
for the past two years. 

2. To the Alumnae Board of Trustees 
for their support and ideas and help in 

3. To the Alumnae everywhere 
through their interest and cooperation 
in planning and attending meetings as 
well as their generosity in contributing to 
the Alumnae Fund. 

4. To the College Administration for 
their support both financial and otherwise 
in our every undertaking. 'We are partic- 
ularly grateful to Dr. Jackson and Miss 
Katherine Taylor, who have given so 
generously of their time as well as their 
thought and efforts. 

5. To the Faculty for their interest 
and cooperation in all of our projects 
and for attending meetings. 

MAY 2 8, 1949 

6. To the students for their coopera- 
tion, interest and work in various efforts 
of the alumnae. 

7. To the committee chairmen who 
have done their work so efficiently and 
effectively, thereby greatly facilitating the 
work of the Association. 

A report of the Alumnae Secretary 
would not be complete without full 
credit being given to Mrs. Evon Dean, 
assistant in the Alumnae Office, who, 
through her untiring efforts, her deep 
loyalty and efficiency makes an invaluable 

In addition to the routine work of 
running the House, correspondence, keep- 
ing the ever changing records, editing the 
Alumnae News, and working with the 
local chapter, the alumnae staff has 
worked with the committees in planning 
the social events, the Harriet Elliott Soc- 
ial Science Forum, the Vocational Guid- 
ance Conference, and work with the legis- 
lature, details of which are included in 
the various committee reports. 

To all of you who have helped, go 
our sincere thanks and we hope that dur- 
ing the next year, we will be able to 
render greater service to the College and 
the Association.

Alumnae Secretary.

News arrived here in the "wilds" of 
Sumatra just yesterday. May 17th. No 
matter how long it takes to get here, 
it is a wonderful tie that keeps us 
in touch. Bob, my husband, even re- 
fuses to let me read it until he has fin- 
ished, and I find myself doing the same 
with his Alumni Book, Being just 12.- 
000 miles from home either via the Pa- 
cific or the Atlantic route, you can well 
imagine how much we both enjoy scan- 
nirg the pages for news of friends and 
their families. 

One of the biggest thrills was acciden- 
tally and literally to bump into Anna 
(Winslow) Newbold '43, whose ship 
had anchored almost at our very front 
door. We were living in Sungei Gerong 
at the time, and if it had been a week 
later when we were to move up to Pa- 
lembang, we would have missed Anna. 
Anna and her small son were on their 
way to Bangkok. Siam, to join her hus- 
band, who is with the American consu- 
late there. She spent a few days in Sungei 
Gerong while the ship was unloading, 
but I was sorry we couldn't get up to 
the city of Palembang to show her 
around. There was a smallpox epidemic 
at that time, and people were dying by 
the dozens. From her letters from Bang- 
kok later, she seemed to be enjoying the 
interesting life of Bangkok, And in her 
last letter, the big news is that she is 
moving to Batavia, Java, Batavia is just 
1 J/S hours by plane from here, so I hope 
we shall be seeing each other soon. It 
certainly is a small, small world after all! 

Now for the story of our life. We 
were married June 14, 1947, Bob left 
for Sumatra in August, and I flew out 
here via K. L. M. six months later in 
January 1948. We have been here since 
then and wouldn't trade anything for 
having come. Bob is assistant purchasing 
agent for Standard Vacuum Oil Com- 
pany. You all have probably been read- 
ing of the political upsets in the Dutch 
East Indies, now called Indonesia. I 
don't pretend to know much about poli- 
tics, but assure you that the papers at 
home have undoubtedly played the situ- 
ation up more than is actually necessary. 
We in Palembang have been lucky; there 
has been no action in our immediate 
vicinity, but we find stories and rumors 
drifting in about the action in Java and 
northern Sumatra. We here are always 
the last to learn the news. Everything 
seems to be quiet these days and we 
hope they continue to be. The Indies 
are still in a horrible mess from the Jap 
occupation, and it is a slow recovery they 
are making. The housing is much worse 
than anything in the states, but even in 
the year or so I have been here it is pos- 
sible to see the vast change for the better. 
Standard 'Vacuum has its refinery in 
Sungei Gerong and its offices. There is 
quite a settlement of people in that town 
with facilities for swimming, bowling, 

Faculty Retirements 

On June 30. 1949. three mem- 
bers of the faculty retired: Professor 
J. P. Givler, head of the department 
of Biology; Miss Edna Forney, as- 
sistant treasurer; and Mrs. J. S. 
Hunter, counselor in Gray Hall. 

Professor Givler has bought a 
home on Westover Terrace, in 
Greensboro, and will continue his 
hobby of repairing musical instru- 
ments. Mrs. Hunter is at home in 
Asheville. Miss Edna Forney, who 
has been conducting trips for Louck 
Tours this summer, will be at her 
home on Lake Drive this fall. 

tennis, movies, hospital, schools, Palem- 
bang is about seven miles from the re- 
finery, Palembang being the Big Town, 
The native compounds and Pasar (mar- 
ketplace) are things you have to become 
accustomed to, for they characteristically 
are laden with the strange odors of the 
Far East; but the European sections are 
quiet pretty. We are now living in a 
small house and are very lucky to have 
one. Our servants number three, but that 
doesn't mean we women don't have lots 
of work to do. Cooking is a problem 
out here, there are so many things we 
have to substitute. We close our cook- 
books in disgust when we read recipes 
calling for whipped cream! 

The native people are interesting peo- 
ple to know, I told Bob if I were born 
a native and had a choice. I would want 
to be one of these people. The Malayan 
language is a beautiful one and easy, too. 
Their religion is Mohammedan for the 
most part, and I have been trying to learn 
as much as I can about it. The face of a 
Malayan is uniquie and their dispositions 
are unusually happy ones. 

There are about 250 Americans here 
and so the community spirit is very high. 
For entertainment there are parties and 
dances, movies, and our big beautiful 
golf course. There is never a dull mo- 
ment. We might add that the weather 
here in this part of the tropics is ideal, 
we always seem to have sunshine and 
a cool breeze at the same time. Of course, 
it rains here once in a while, but not 
enough to make us worry like Californ- 
ians do! 

We spent our local leave of two weeks 
in Singapore, and needless to say we had 
a grand time. We really felt like hicks 
from the sticks though. I also spent 10 
days in Batavia, Java, recently visiting. 
Our next trip will be the renowned island 
of Bali. And then our big trip will be 
back to the states in August 1950. which 
will be here before we know it. Be see- 
ing you then.

Of particular interest to alumnae and 
visitors during commencement was the 
costume exhibit arranged throughout the 
Alumnae House by Ellen Griffin '40, 
general reunion chairman, and her com- 
mittee. Dresses, scrapbooks, pictures, and 
annuals were displayed along with cos- 
tumes of various periods from 1896 to 

Many of the dresses were exhibited on 
mannequins, but the response to the re- 
quest was so much greater than was ex- 
pected that some were hung near the 
tables which were filled with photographs, 
programs, etc. Class day dresses, recital 
dress, evening dresses, sport costumes, even 
pantaloons were on display, marked with 
the name of the wearer and the occasion. 

Among those who sent dresses were 
Susan (Green) Finch '18. who sent her 
recital dress; Marguerite Wright, a gym 
suit of 1915 vintage; Octavia (Jordan) 
Perry '16, her class day dress; Carrie 
(Tabor) Stevens '20, a 1920 gym suit; 
Annette (Bridges) Dulaney '41, a Sun- 
day dress for 1941; Jane Summerell '10, 
class day dress; Virginia (Brown) Doug- 
las '02. a beaded dress along with several 
others; Elizabeth (Sockwell) Scott '34, 
an evening dress. 

The wedding dress worn by Mrs. 
Fodie (Buie) Kenyon '96 and the pic- 
ture of Mrs. Kenyon in her wedding 
gown made a most interesting display. 
An embroidered linen dress and a pair 
of pantaloons made by Mrs. Kenyon also 
attracted much attention. 

A good many of the dresses were given 
to the Home Economics Costume Collec- 
tion and it is the hope of the Costume 
Committee that eventually, dresses of 
each year in the history of the college 
will be added. 

Assisting Ellen Griffin with the cos- 
tume display were Elizabeth Hathaway 
'25, Dorothy Clement '23, Agnes Coxe 
'27, and Valerie (Powell) Jones '40.

"After attending Woman's College, 'N 
& r at that time, 1894-1895, I went to 
Chowan College, Murfreesboro. I then 
taught in the rural schools of North 
Carolina for four years. In 1901 I 
was married to a distant cousin of 
our Dr. Mclver in old Moore County, 
now Lee County. We bought a farm 
on which we lived for three years, 
when I followed my husband to Flor- 
ida and became something of a pio- 
neer. For thirty-seven years we have 
lived in Lake Wales, site of the beau- 
tiful Singing Tower and home of the 
late Edward Bok. When we came 
here, the school was a one-teacher 
school with some twenty students. 
Now a plant of some 40 or 50 teachers 
and more than 1200 students. With 
our four children, I was in close touch 
with growth of our school, a president

forty-six years and is now enjoying 
the things she was unable to do while 
teaching. She has an apartment in the

Susie (Middleton) Thorpe of Rocky 
Mount, wrote that she had hoped to 
attend the 1899 reunion, but was not 
feeling well and was unable to make 
it. She says she hopes to be able to 
attend the next reunion. 

She went to California in June to 
visit one of her daughters who is mar- 
ried and lives out there. She has four 
fine children, a son and three daugh- 
ters, all of whom are married. 

Bessie Moody says that she and her 
sister had to be in Milton, Fla., just 
at the time of the reunion. They lost 
their brother a year and a half ago, 
and they are carrying on. They have 
a six-acre place in Florida. 

Mattie (Moore) Taylor, who was 
here for commencement, wrote in 
May: "Mr. Taylor and I have lived in 
South Carolina since our marriage in 
1904. We have lived in Florence 42 
years. Mr. Taylor passed on in June, 

1944, and our second son died in June, 

1945. Since these trying years, life 
seems to almost 'styme' me. How- 
ever, two beautiful grandchildren have 
added much to my happiness." 

Elizabeth (Smithwick) Smith, Rt. 2, 
Windsor, wrote Jessie (Whitaker) 
Ricks in June saying how sorry she 
was not to come to the Fiftieth Re- 
union and sending best wishes to the 
Class of 1899. She has lived alone 
since her husband's death in 1946. "I 
have chickens and a garden and my 
hobby is fancy work." 

Frances Suttles lives in Asheville. 
She suffers from arthritis but enjoys 
reading aloud to her friends at the 
convalescent home. Miss Bessie Moody 
visited her in June and says she is 
just as cheerful and good as she has 
always been. 

Nellie (Whitfield) Shaw, Laurin- 
burg, had hoped to be present for the 
reunion, but her 91-year old father 
broke his hip and died in June. Both 
of her daughters are married, and 
there are three grandsons. Her older 
son was married in April, and the 
younger son lives at home with her 
and her husband. 

Bettie (Wright) Smith of New Bern 
writes that she had hoped till the last 
minute to be able to be present for 
the reunion. She thought of the class 
of 1899 all day, she says, wondering 
who was there. 

She and her husband have retired, 
both of them having been active in 
school work. They have three chil- 
dren, two daughters and one son. The 
son and one daughter, who lives in 

California, are married. The younger 
daughter teaches in the Charlotte City 
Schools. Her son lost sight in one of 
his eyes, due to an injury, while at 
Edg'ewood Arsenal during the war. On 
account of this, he had to give up his 
splendid job in research work with 
Air Reduction Co., and go to Bucknell 
University, Penn., where he teaches 
chemical engineering. She has four 
grandchildren, three girls, and a boy. 

Fiftieth Anniversary of 
Class of 1899 

The Class of 18<)9 had a most enjoy- 
able Fiftieth Anniversary Luncheon Sat- 
urday, May 28, in the private dining 
room of the Home Economics Cafeteria. 
Eleven members of the class, several from 
earlier classes and Miss Em Austin, Miss 
Mary Petty and Miss Annie Petty, special 
guests, were present. 

White place cards tied with red rib- 
bon and printed in red ink marked each 
member's place and the class colors were 
used in the centerpiece of large crimson 
carnations (the class iflower) and fern. 
Running from the centerpiece were gar- 
lands of fern and carnations. A red rib- 
bon from each place card to the flowers 
made a very effective table and each per- 
son was given a red carnation as a favor. 

Each member of the class told what 
she had been doing and about her family, 
and news of those who could not come 
gave much pleasure. 

Mrs. Jessie Whitaker Ricks was the 
gracious presiding officer in the absence of 
Mrs. Rosalind Shepard Willis, who was 
unable to come at the last minute.. Ar- 
rangements for the meeting had been 
macie by Mrs, Willis and Mrs. Ricks. 

Eleven members of the class have gone, 
and at the close of the meeting the group 
bowed heads for a few seconds in mem- 
ory of them. 

Those present voted to hold the next 
'99 Reunion in 1953 with Mrs. Lucy 
Coffin Ragsdale and Mrs. Gary Ogburn 
Jones as hostesses. The ony regret of 
the reunion was that every living mem- 
ber of the class could not be present.

1907 Reunion 

The twelve of us who met for lunch- 
eon at the O, Henry Hotel at one o'clock 
on Alumnae Day had a wonderful time 
together talking of by-gone days, and 
particularly, hearing news of those of 
you who were absent. We missed all of 
you, and wished we could have had news 
of everybody. 

Five of the six, who had written let- 
ters and cards to the others before com- 
mencement, were present. Eula Blue 
wrote that she couldn't come because of 
the feebleness of her 96-year-old mother.

ence Ledbetter had expected to be there 
but didn't make it at the last minute. 
Letters and cards came from Rosa Lee 
Dixon, Ethel Lyon, Mattie Kate Shaw, 
Margaret (Call) Thompson, Sue (Wil- 
liams) Williams, and Jane (Robinson) 
Pearson, saying their own illness or that 
of a member of their family would pre- 
vent their coming. 

How I did wish every one could have 
been present at the Alumnae Meeting to 
bear Dr, Jackson tell of the wonderful 
growth planned for the college during the 
next few years. 

Be sure that you begin to make plans 
now to go to our 50th reunion eight 
years hence.

1909 Ruby Reunion 

Evelyn (Gudger) Roberts of Marshall. 
N. C, writes of the 1909 Ruby Re- 
union : 

"Our 40 year reunion was a success! 
1 had the best time during the day I 
spent at the College that I ever had any- 
where and will be thinking of it for a 
long, long time, I saw so many old 
friends that I had not expected to meet." 

Evelyn had never been back to W. C. 
since 1909. She brought her handsome 
son. Landon, with her. Just one letter 
like Evelyn's is enough to make Ellen 
Griffin '40, reunion chairmain, forget the 
work it took to make the reunion a 
happy occasion. 

Jane Summerell was hostess for the 
College at our luncheon in South Dining 
Hall. She had everything perfect. How- 
ever some of the naughty niners' forgot 
their forty years and led by their honor- 
ary member Senator Frank Graham, they 
went down the line to serve their own 
plates. As soon as Jane got us seated, 
Lola (Lasley) Dameron of Burlington 
presented Mrs, Graham a white carna- 
tion corsage tied with our class colors 
blue and white. We fell in love with the 
charming wife of our senator from North 
Carolina, and she is now a member of 
our class. Edna (Duke) Johnson of Mt. 
Airy, pinned a boutonniere on our class 
mascot. Robert A. Merritt, a Greensboro 
attorney. Robert promised to come to 
our fiftieth reunion. Florence Landis trav- 
elled all night from Washington, D, C 
so she could be with us. She gave Jane 
her carnation, Evelyn (Gudger) Roberts 
gave Frank Graham his flower. 

We behaved very much like Freshmen 
as we talked of old times, old friends, 
and as we exchanged pictures of our 
families. We told amusing incidents of 
1905-1909, Some of us as Freshmen 
had a good time jumping over the shrubs 
down College Avenue. AH material for 
our 1909 Scrap Book will be sent to 
Nettie (Dixon) Smith. Jean (Booth) 
Matheson joined us at the Alumnae Meet- 
ing. Six out of a membership of 1 8 is a 
good record. We had flowers for Mary 
(Mitchell) Sellars' grave and also for 
Mr. and Mrs. Guy Roberts' son. 

It was a happy occasion and we missed 
those of you who could not come. 

Nettie (Dixon) Smith. 
Everlasting President.

band. One followed in my footsteps 
and is an English teacher. The other 
lives with me, she, with her fine hus- 
band and three live-wii-e boys, now

few months has been directing Dupli- 
cate Bridge tournaments at Gastonia 
Country Club, Kings Mountain Coun- 
try Club, and at the Gastonia Wom- 
an's Club. Being a Duplicate Bridge 
tournament director calls for all the 
faculties of a strict school teacher, for 
every rule must be followed exactly." 

Mary (Green) Matthews writes: "I

Miss Clara Byrd, President." 

Mary Jane (Dorrity) Stimson, RFD 
2, Box 133, Morganton, N. C, writes: 
"Since the death of my husband in 
June 1945, it has been my good for- 
tune and pleasure to teach again. It 
has been a greater privilege to teach, 
because my experience as a wife and 
mother has given me a closer contact 
with the value of a good foundation 
in our education. As Dr. Foust used 
to tell us: "He that knows that he 
knows is wise, follow him.' It helps to 
teach if one knows why one needs to 
know. Life has taught me this. There- 
fore, my pupils profit partly from my 
own experiences. Last winter, some 
185 or more pupils and I worked to- 
gether in wrestling with arithmetic, 
algebra, goemetry, and English in 
Madison High School. 

"A serious major operation kept me 
out of school only four weeks. My 
health is now excellent. My fifteen- 
year-old son, Benjamin Eugene, and I 
are spending the summer at our little 
cottage on Lake James, where we will 
be until school opens in the fall."

assisted in a workshop for teachers 
sponsored by Wichita University and 
Board of Education for the Teachers 
of Wichita. I loved Kansas wheat 
fields, oil and airplane industry, cattle,

the pioneer spirit, even in teaching!"

He is now in Los Angeles working up

We — and I do mean we — have spent 
about four years developing his ideas. 
That is my real interest in life. 

"Hiking is my hobby — yesterday, 
did about 12 miles and that is one of 
the shorter trips. When Ivan is here, 
we spend every week-end camping out

I am doing fairly well." 

Virginia (Terrell) Lathrop has been

Susie (West) Mendenhall wrote re- 
cently: "While en route to Brevard, 
N. C, taking our son, Dickie, age 15, 
to the music camp, Transylvania, we 
had a good visit in Asheville with the 
Albert Lathrops. Terry Lathrop, age 
14, and our son, Dickie, were happy to 
renew a friendship begun when they 
were very young while we lived in 
Burlington. No doubt the Lathrops 
heaved a great sigh of relief when 
the Mendenhalls left, for our six-year- 
old David got lost while looking for 
the two older boys. While Virginia 
and I scoured the neighborhood on 
foot searching for the little lost sheep, 

and the males (as usual) were riding 
around looking, up drove two Ashe- 
ville policemen with lost David. There 
was great rejoicing and appreciation 
with sighs of relief. All conceded there 
is never a dull moment with little boys 
around. The Lathrops have such a 
lovely place overlooking the Grove 
Park Inn Golf Links, so delightfully 
cool, I recommend all '23's spend their 
vacation there!" The Mendenhalls live 
at 197 Highland Avenue, Athens, Ga.

1926 Reunion 

Twenty members of the Class of 1926 
attended the Reunion Luncheon held on 
Saturday, May 28th, at Mrs. Martha 
Cook Coleman's home on Spring Garden 
Street. The Reunion Luncheon was a 
wonderful affair, and all of us are look- 
ing forward to our great Twenty-fifth 
Reunion in 1951. Do begin to make 
your plans to attend! 

A special committee, headed by Mar- 
jorie Hood and helped by Mary (Polk) 
Gordon (who made the attractive little 
favors of tiny paper umbrellas bearing 
the numerals "26") and Hermene (War- 
lick) Eichhorn. had made arrangements 
for the Reunion, and for the Luncheon, 
which was served buffet style from a 
table which was decorated by a center- 
piece of yellow and white flowers which, 
with the green foliage, bore out the colors 
of both the College and our Class. 

Following the reading of the minutes 
of the last Class meeting, and the signing 
of names for the records, there was an 
election of officers, as follows: President, 
Hermene (Warlick) Eichhorn: Secretary- 
Treasurer, Eleanor (Vanneman) Benson. 
These officers were elected to serve until 
the big Silver Reunion. During the short 
business session, expenses of the letter 
sent out before the Reunion were met 
by a "passing of the hat." 

But the principal matter of business 
consisted in remembering classmates pres- 
ent and absent. Those of you who were 
not present were very much missed, and 
we look forward to seeing you in 1951.

ceeds from which ($203.50) were used 
tow.ard the church building fund. 

"One Sunday last winter our min- 
ister distributed $10.00 bills to all who 
would take them. We were to con- 
sider them a talent and increase them 
as much as possible. When Harry sug- 
gested that we give a concert, I looked 
at him in amazement and was quite 
pessimistic about its possibilities. 
Nevertheless, we set to work with that 
in mind and used all our spare time 
practicing. It turned out very well, 
and we had an enthusiastic audience 
of more than 400. Harry wore white 
tie and tails, and I wore my wedding 
gown (minus the train), white taffeta, 
with seed pearl trimming. We assumed 
our very best concert manners and 
tried to be quite dignified for this one 

The local paper commenting on 
the 'talent' program said: 

"The large crowd which came to 
hear a program of familiar music was 
delighted with the Reeds' playing and 
equally impressed by their charm . . . 
Needless to say the financial return 
from the program was more than 
heartening; but even if it hadn't been, 
the evening had its rewards in ways 
not measurable in dollars and cents."

The high spot of Alumnae Day was 
of course our luncheon at the Chicken 
Shack out on the High Point Road, 
Thirty 29'ers chatted incessantly and each 
one told about what she had been doing 
for the past twenty years. It was such 
fun checking up on those of us who 
were there, as well as many of you absent 

Ruth Clinard, who is executive secre- 
tary for the Red Cross in Greensboro, 
was local luncheon chairman and did a 
grand Job of making all arrangements.

on the campus, yet escaped us. Olive

1934 Reunion Luncheon

class reunion luncheon in South Dining 
Hall. It seemed like old times to see 
Margaret (Plonk) Isley. Margaret now 
has two children, a boy and a girl. Her 
daughter was recently chosen May queen 
of her class in Burlington. Margaret's 
husband. Sessler Carlysle Isley. has just 
been elected mayor of Burlington. 

We were glad to see Elizabeth (Sock- 
well) Scott and Margaret (Winder) Ha- 
ley. They came to express Adelaide 
(Fortune) Holderness' regrets at not be- 
ing able to be with us and to give us the 
news of the Greensboro alumnae. So 
many pictures of attractive, bright-eyed 
children were passed around that at this 
point we became confused. All wc know 
is that the Glass of 19 34 has some good 
prospects for daughters of Woman's Col- 

Among the '34's returning were: Alice 
Armfield. Sara Soger. Mary Neal

We were fortunate in being seated next 
to the Class of 1909, where Senator and 
Mrs. Frank Graham were special guests. 
We were all thrilled when Senator Gra- 
ham, at the end of the meal, came over 
to our table and shook hands with each 
of us. Those of us who were able to 
stay for the Alumnae meeting in the af- 
ternoon had the privilege of hearing Sen- 
ator Graham and Dr. Jackson speak. 

Our time together seemed all too short. 
We missed all of you who were absent 
and wish that you could have been with 
us. We hope to see more of you at our 
next reunion. In the meantime, please 
write in more news.

1939 Tenth Keunion 

Almost eighty members of the cUss of 
'39 gathered in South Dining Hall for 
the big tenth reunion luncheon. You've 
never heard so many "hello's" or seen so 
many folks grinning from ear to ear. 
We had a .fine lunch and once again 
weakened the rafters with our class song. 
After trying to shout over the clatter of 
dishes (it still can't be done), we ad- 
journed to IVIaxine Garner's territory in 
South Spencer for a post-luncheon meet- 
ing and get-together. 

Emily (Harris) Preyer wasn't there — 
but it took 3.000 miles of ocean to keep 
her away. The tresasurer's report caused 
such prolonged and uncontrolled laughter 
that it almost broke up the meeting. 
When things calmed down, we discussed 
suggestions for the use of our class funds. 
It was decided that $25.00 be set aside 
for the Sarah Atkinson Loan Fund and 
the balance (about $400.00) be turned 
over to the campus committee in charge 
of aid to foreign students — to be used to 
cover the expenses of a foreign student 
at W. C. We "passed the hat" and added 
nearly $50.00 more. Additional contri- 
butions should be sent to Miss Bernice 
Draper, Woman's College. 

With the busines out of the way. we 
set about "catching up " in earnest. Each 
of us stood up and gave a quick — and 
often hilarious — personal resume to bring 
folks up to date. The long distance 
prizes went to Mary (Cochrane) Austin 
who flew from Pensacola and Jeanne 
(Carey) Reynolds who came all the way 
from Elmira. N. Y. 

1 wish I had enough space to pass on 
all the news to those of you who were 
not able to come back "home" for re- 
union. It was a wonderful experience 
and worlds of fun. I'm sure we won't 
ever forget it. 

Until our next big reunion rolls 
around. let's keep in touch with each 
other via the Alumnae News. It will 
make No. 15 even more fun.

May: "As I write this, spring has 
come to Chicago and it is a blessed 
relief from all the cold, cold wind and 
dirty coal dust. This life is a far cry 
from that which we knew and loved in 
sunny California, but we hope the two 
years it will require for Bob to get 
his degree here at Northern Illinois 
College of Optometry will pass 
quickly. I am anticipating a visit with 
my parents in North Carolina within 
a month or two. This will be especially 
nice for my two girls, age 17 months 
and 30 months, as there is limited 
space in the vicinity of our apartment 
building for them to play. I did so 
enjoy the Alumnae Dinner meeting 
which was held here in Chicago last 
month. Listening to Miss Taylor talk 
of the progress being made in so many 
different departments at Woman's Col- 
lege was like a shot in the arm for one 
who has been away from N. C. as long 
as I have." Her new address is 915

1941 Keunion Luncheon 

The Class of '41 had a grand re- 
union during the 5 7th Commencement. 
We had luncheon in the Home Economics 
Cafeteria. There were twenty-six of us 
back and you can just imagine the chat- 
ter that went on in our dining room. 
Our group was especially honored, and 
I'm not so sure but what we were the 
only group so honored, as Marjorie Nor- 
ton Bishop had brought her husband 
with her, and he entered right into the 
spirit of the day and seemingly had just 
as good a time as we did. We sat at a 
U-shaped table and had two lovely ar-. 
rangements of blue and white flowers. 
One of these had to be moved as more 
and more of our classmates came in. It 
f was real good to see so many familiar 
faces, but we surely missed that of our 
everlasting president. Lib Patten Braf- 
ford, who was ill and could not get here. 
She sent her greetings and good wishes, 
though, to all of us. We were pleased 
too, to have Miss Shivers as our guest. 
Just like old times! 

After lunch. Miss Shivers welcomed 
us with a nice little speech and suggested 
that each of us tell what we were doing 
with ourselves now. We started with 
Carolyn Willis — she is changing jobs this 
summer, leaving the Baptist Hospital at 
Winston-Salem for a bigger and better 
job in Boston, and came on around the 
table to Mary Miller who told us she 
had come back to graduate all over again 
— yes, she got her Master's Degree in 
Home Economics this year. She is now 
interior decorator at Ivey's in Charlotte. 

Helen Williams told us she had 150 
boys of her own — she is the only female 
member of the teaching faculty at the 
University of Virginia — teaching Span- 
ish! Margaret Coit is just before having 
a book published on John C. Calhoun, 
and I could just go on and on about the 
jobs, babies, housekeeping, etc., but I 
was supposed to write only a short note 
about the luncheon, and it has turned out 
to be quite lengthy. I must say that we 
had news of those who could not be 
with us too. and learned of new names, 
new babies, and new jobs. And we had 
pictures to see too, each proud mama 
having written on the back of the photo- 
graphs the name and age of her offspring. 

We really, sincerely hope that more 

and more of us can get together at the 

next reunion. We will be having our 

tenth in 1951! My, how the time flies!

Josephine (Howard) Munson wrote 
in June: "In November, 1946, I sailed 
for Europe to join my husband. First 
Lt. Arthur L. Munson, who at that 
time was stationed in Weiden, a small 
village in Germany bordering on 
Czechoslovakia. For two years and 
four months I was in Germany, living 

in Weiden for four days, in Regens- 
burg (Germany's oldest city, located 
in Southern Germany — Bavaria — and 
on the Danube), in Straubing, and 
finally in Landshut which is two hours 
from Munich, the capital of Bavaria. 
While in Europe, I visited Strausburg 
and Paris in France; Wels, Salzburg, 
Linz, and Vienna in Austria; I was in 
Prague, Czechoslovakia, three times 
and in Pilsn once; I was on tour 
through Italy and skiied in Switzer- 
land. The experience, while at once 
depressing, lonesome, and often mo- 
notonous, was one I shall never forget. 
There were many things to see, to 
learn; things which the people of the 
United States still do not know and 
perhaps cannot appreciate. I have col- 
lected insurmountable piles of notes 
and shall try to write them into book 
form in the near future. Since I have 
been home these past three months, I 
have made sixteen talks on Germany 
to various civic organizations. Also, 
I wrote and enacted the part of a 
Czech girl in a radio play which was 
broadcast over WFNC on May 15, 
commemorating 'I Am An American' 
day. There are still so many things 
to say, so many things to write. I 
shall leave that for my book and hope 
that my classmates may share this 
experience with me through the pages 
of this book." Josephine is at home at

1948 Reunion 

The 1948 luncheon, held in South 
Dining Hall, brought back memories as 
we stood in line again for the nice meal. 
The individual tables (which didn't stay 
individual long, as girls quickly pushed 
them together) were centered with large 
'48's cut from purple cardboard. Fran 
(Ashcraft) McBane and Margaret John- 
son were in charge of arrangements. 

After the luncheon, the class mem- 
bers gathered in North Spencer parlor for 
a meeting and get-together. Dr. Edna 
Arundel, our class chairman, spoke to 
the girls and told them how glad she 
was to see them all together again. She 
told them about her forthcoming summer 
trip out west and that she planned to 
look up any class members who had 
strayed out that way. 

The girls gave greetings and news from 
the class members who were unable to 
attend. Page Coleman sent her regrets 
with news that she was just beginning 
new work. Ruth Gregory and Marge 
Smith were busy getting married, as were 
several other class members. 

The main business of the meeting was 
business that brought a saddening effect. 
Many of the girls had asked about a pos- 
sible memorial to Mary Fields Jones. 
It was brought up that the class had 
given flowers on Founder's Day in her 
memory, but the girls also wanted a 
permanent memorial. The motion was 
made and voted upon that the class presi- 
dent appoint a committee to decide upon 
a suitable memorial and that funds for 
this be secured by asking each class mem- 
ber to contribute at least a dollar to be 
used for the memorial, with any remain- 
ing amount being put into the class treas- 

With much well-wishing and promis- 
ing to write, the first reunion meeting of 
the Class of '48 — one considered quite 
successful by those in attendance — broke

back for our second reunion in 1950!

two definite jobs for outside paint

coat does its specific work. The first 
coat locks the pores of the wood

life-giving oils. The second coat is 
built to laugh off ultra-violet sun 
rays and weather, still sparkles 
after several years.
